Conclusions: Patients with low income, family caregiver, and no insurance have a poorer prognosis after ischemic stroke that can be partly explained by intermediate variable in the patients' demographic characteristics, cardiovascular disease, behavior lifestyle, and stroke severity.

I received a call the other day from someone supposedly at the social security administration asking for medical records for one of my patients who filed for disability. What's particularly eye raising is that I had finished seeing this patient for the first time earlier that same day. I was informed that every state has a set fee that a medical practice can charge for sending medical records for disability determinations. Is that true? I have never heard of that before. What is a fair... charging for disability forms and medical records

I would like to thank the guest editors for this excellent review. They not only deal with the challenging scenario of assessing medical impairment but also take us through the labyrinth of decision-making strategies, dealing with known and less obvious consequences. Disability in our society is reaching epidemic proportions, costing the taxpayer billions of dollars, much of which is attributed to musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions. It becomes paramount for our medical specialty to remain current in an effort to appropriately assess impairments and their subsequent impact on not only the individual but also our society.

Publication date: Available online 17 June 2019Source: International Journal of Pediatrics and Adolescent MedicineAuthor(s): Kahlid Alshaigi, Reema Albraheem, Khalid Alsaleem, Moneer Zakaria, Aman Jobeir, Hesham AldhalaanAbstractBackgroundThe autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosed children have social and cognitive disabilities. For parents, these behaviors can lead to humiliation, social exclusion and isolation. Stigma is a problem that not only may affect the individual with high functioning autism, but has the potential to extend to their family as well. Indeed, research indicates that the parents of children with dis...

McFadyenAbstractBackground: Exercise options for those with moderate to high levels of disability are limited. The aim of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of a progressive, four week lower limb cycling programme using active-passive trainers (APT's) on spasticity, cardiovascular fitness, function and quality of life in people with moderate to severe MS.Methods: Participants were in-patients in the Physical Disability Rehabilitation Unit, Queen Elizabeth University Hospi...

Major challenges to identifying genes that contribute to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) risk include the availability of large ASD cohorts, the contribution of many genes overall and small effect sizes attributable to common gene variants. An alternative approach is to use a model organism to detect alleles that impact ASD-relevant behaviors and ask whether homologous human genes infer ASD risk. Here we utilized the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel (DGRP) as a tool to probe for perturbation in naturally occurring behaviors in Drosophila melanogaster that are analogous to three behavior domains: impaired social communicat...

-Yeon Kim The newly developed cervical lordotic curve-controlled traction (C-LCCT) appears to be an ideal method to improve the treatment outcome in patients with cervical intervertebral disc disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate the treatment outcomes of C-LCCT including the functional and morphological changes of the cervical intervertebral disc compared to traditional traction (TT) with a randomized controlled trial design. A total of 40 patients with cervical intervertebral disc disease at the C5/6 level confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging were recruited and assigned to either the C-LCCT group o...
